Limit is 98b in the paddock from 15ft, and 92db on track from 50ft.

I failed the on-track test last time I was there, but they let me finish the day - I'm now in the process of buying a new muffler and hoping that will solve my problem.

Good luck to you too!

So the brake issue is fixed. Today Dave and I flushed the entire brake system with some Wilwood EXP600. Bled the shit out of the brakes, even hit the calipers with a hammer to break loose any air bubbles. I didn't see one bubble. Test drove the car and of course the pedal still sinks the floor and the car doesn't really stop.

Changed the master cylinder as Graeme suggested and boom, the problem is gone. Brakes finally grab and the car stops lol.

So I presume the traction control and anti lock has been removed, if not how did you bleed it after changing the master cylinder.

Also I find the only way to bleed the brakes on these things is to push all of the pistons all the way in while bleeding it.

When you swap the muffler, weld on tips that point down. I don't know for a fact about Calabogie - find out - but at Tremblant, the meter is on the front straight wall. If it's also on the driver's side at Calabogie, make the tip(s) point down and away, makes a big difference. If you're not 100% sure, also bring a bunch of steel wool, steel mesh and hose clamps. Shove the wool into the exhaust tip(s), mesh over top, and clamp down with the hoseclamp.

Good to hear about the brakes man. Loving the new wing. I still say you should hang onto that low rise for the 328

Has the abs light popped back on lately, or have you noticed anything majorly out of place underneath that may have tripped it?

that looks phat yo! P.H. fat!
I had the privilege of driving this car and my body responded with huge amounts of euphoria and a small chub.
This car is pretty much the automotive equivalent of having angry sex with Angelina Jolie while duck-hunting with rocket-launchers alongside Satan himself.

It shifts so crisp, and when you hammer the throttle the ass end comes out just enough to say, "Ya I have it, but I'm not gonna **** you."

Every man should have one of these.
